Pros: 720HD video recording, multiple modes and features, large LCD display, solid feel
Cons: indoor photos noisy, blurry (even with OIS on). Auto shutter at 1/45s too slow. Details lost (like text on a poster), even at full 12mpixels & "Fine" quality. Edges have warping. LCD really bad - I thot every photo out-of-focus (until I zoomed in).
Summary: I switched from the kodak easyshare platform to this camera because of the MP, Opt Zoom and price. Mistake. It is extremely difficult to get this camera to take a clear photo of my kids running around (which is why I got it to begin with). I could be using it wrong, but have tried everything listed in the owners manual and even had friends and family give it a go. No luck and I regret the purchase.
